Series produced by KUMD

Series image

A program of Ojibwe culture, featuring native speakers telling stories told in both Ojibwe and English, and discussing the culture surrounding these stories.

Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa features native speakers from the Ojibwe communities in and surrounding northeastern Minnesota, many of whom are language instructors of Ojibwe at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa is produced by KUMD and the Department of American Indian Studies at UMD, with funding provided in part by a Strategic Initiative Grant from the Chancellor’s Office of UMD, by Eni–gikendaasoyang – the Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Language Revitalization at the UMD, and by The Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
